Product Description

Oscar®-nominated actress Julie Walters (Mamma Mia, Harry Potter) takes on the lead role in a revealing portrait of Mo Mowlam; the powerfully charismatic woman whose no-nonsense approach to politics helped achieve one of the most monumental landmarks in British history, the Good Friday Agreement. Mo’s warmth, passion and unorthodox style made her renowned throughout the country and loved by many. Away from the public gaze, she found happiness later in life with husband Jon Norton (David Haig – My Boy Jack), but just months before the pivotal 1997 general election, she discovered she had a brain tumour. Defying medics, her brave battle with ill-health was played out on the public stage. A poignant and intimate look at the life of the most popular, if controversial, Labour politician of a generation, as well as an inside account of the extraordinary events which led to peace in Northern Ireland.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must-see film 2 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
Everybody should see this biography - Mo Mowlam was undoubtedly an amazing
woman. It may very well reduce you to tears, as it has me, but watching
Mo's story unfold will make her a rightful heroine in the eyes of many who
were too young to have known her outstanding contribution in bringing peace
to Northern Ireland. Britain lost it's best ever female role model when Mo
died - her integrety, determination, courage and overwhelming spirit are
rare qualities these days and I can only hope that my daughter grows up to
be half the woman she was.

This film ought to be part of the national curriculum - teenage girls need
to see that there's more to life than being a drugged up popstar or a
cosmetically enhanced glamour girl...!

RIP Mo - you were one in a million and are sadly missed

5.0 out of 5 stars Epitome of a powerful, difficult to watch drama 31 Jan 2010
By Mr. B. R. Good VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Set against the backdrop of the rise to power of New Labour in 1997 - it is hard to decide which area is more upsetting: The battle with illness by Mo, or that dreamy Summer of 1997 when the entire country watched with such hope as Labour came to power. Flawless acting by Julie Walters, at times slightly overplaying the lines, is mixed with emotional scenes between husband (played by David Haig, not only as husband but also best friend) recently married at the time, and close political colleagues. Of course the main subject matter is the determination to bring peace to Northern Ireland. This is not a particularly enjoyable film, it's bleak by it's very nature - but it's also superbly sharp and moving. Julie Walters plays Mowlam as wacky and comical, (but above all that, so brave) although there is nothing particularly light-hearted about any line in the film. It's far too real for that.
As Mowlam begins to loose the battle - so delicately filmed are the scenes, it's hard not to think of the fragility of your own life and family.
A superb film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mo 12 Feb 2010
By Jon1
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was aware that Mo Mowlam was one of the few politicians with such generosity of spirit, a passion for people, and a determination to improve people's lives. I missed seeing this great drama on television recently and so decided to purchase the DVD. I am glad i watched this film with Julie Walters who was absolutely magnificent playing Mo, and i sometimes forgot that it wasn't Mo i was watching and listening to. Julie Walters is a great actor and she did a fantastic service to the memory of one of our greatest politicians ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow - an excellent film! 31 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
This film lets you see the decency that some politicians have and the altruistic actions of the few. It also lets you see the very dark side of NuLab and the political positioning and back-stabbing.

As Mo (Julie Walters) says. "If you want a friend in politics, buy a dog!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Walters at her best 27 May 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Being slightly in awe of Julie Walters acting abilities I offer no apology in being bias with my review. She captures brilliantly the inner essence of Mo & puts across the story of Mo's political & personal life with such aplomb its almost like watching a documentary. And what a life story!
This is without doubt a fantastic portrayal of an incredible woman. She was obviously a very decent, honest, funny and caring human being - inner values she carried with her into the political arena - sadly where they were taken advantage of. May she rest in peace knowing she was true to her conscience. A must see film.
